Thank you to all who attended last night’s Annual Meeting. As always, it was wonderful to connect, catch up and communicate our successes over this past school year!
During the course of the evening, I lost count of the number of times that I heard the word volunteer, including within my own presentation on the state of the school. I greatly appreciate our parent volunteers who generously donate their time and talents to make ASM a stronger and more robust learning community.
Our board of directors, comprised of volunteers, has the important job of governing the school. Each year, new members are voted on to the board and others leave as their term ends. Parents and other members of the corporation (ASM) voted for the slate of directors at last night’s meeting. Returning for another 3-year term is Treasurer Eric Farnkoff, father of three ASM students in Children’s House and Lower Elementary, and newly elected to a 3-year term is Director Sohil Thakkar, dad of two ASM students in Children’s House and Lower Elementary. I am thankful to have Eric and Sohil on the board and look forward to working with all of the directors!
It is bittersweet to say farewell to board directors Peter Borans, father of a lower elementary student, and Kimberly Maggio, mom to a kindergartner. Both Peter and Kim have given tirelessly of their time during their terms and have enriched ASM’s board with their expertise and wisdom.
Once again, I appreciate all that our parents do at ASM! To show our gratitude, we invite you to our Parent Appreciation Coffee on Friday, June 2nd from 8:15 – 9:45 a.m. Just stop by the Visitor’s Center for coffee and goodies. For those of you who don’t have much time, the treats will be available in to-go bags. Please come and let us thank you!
